Thomas Frank believes Brentford “have a very good chance” of keeping Christian Eriksen beyond this season.

Eriksen, who joined Brentford on a six-month deal in January, has been a revelation back in the Premier League and has helped propel the Bees away from the relegation zone.

After proving he can still perform at his previous levels after recovering from a cardiac arrest while playing for Denmark last June, the 30-year-old midfielder is a target for rivals clubs.

Tottenham are considering a move to re-sign Eriksen in the summer, while Manchester United and Newcastle have also been linked with a move for him. But Brentford are keen to extend his deal and believe they are in a strong position to keep him.

Speaking after Brentford lost 3-0 against United at Old Trafford last night, Frank said: “I am always positive. I always believe we have a very good chance. I know he is happy here, he is enjoying his football. It is a decision that will be taken at the end of the season.”

Asked how Brentford are trying to convince Eriksen to stay, Frank said: “Very simple, I speak to him. We are presenting our plans and discussing it back and forth.”

Last night’s defeat leaves Brentford 14th in the Premier League table, eight points clear of the relegation zone.
